Tamang Heritage Trek

Destination Nepal Activity Trekking in Nepal
Duration 10 days Group Size Min 2
Max Altitude 0 Difficulty Easy

Our 10 days journey of the Tamang Heritage Trek takes place in the Langtang region of Nepal. Being a short trek in Nepal and close to Kathmandu, Rediscover Nepal takes you on a cultural journey. 
The Tamang Heritage trek is recognized as one of the most pleasing treks in Nepal which begins from Kathmandu followed by a drive to Syabrubesi. This adventure trek takes you to the exciting environment of the Langtang Valley with beautiful mountain views and cultural villages. The Langtang region was once affected by natural disaster including earthquake and landslides. After the region was declared safe, many tourists began to head back towards the Langtang Valley. This is the closest place to Kathmandu where you can get beautiful views of snowcapped mountains and glaciers. The valley is surrounded by Mt. Langtang Lirung and it offers different pine forests, swift mountain streams, rugged rock and snow-capped peaks.

The route to Kyanjin
We drive towards Syabrubesi with views of different beautiful mountains and settlements. We can see different villages in the way that are rich in their culture and tradition speaking different languages. We start to trek from the lower region of Langtang Valley across small villages, farmlands and verdant forest towards Kyanjin Gompa. We climb towards Tserko Ri which gives us excellent views of the sunrise over the Langtang ranges. The region was once an important trading route as it borders Tibet. You can still see the influence of local culture in the area. Our Rediscover Nepal trekking team will inform you about everything on the way! Moreover, this trek also takes you to different cultural villages which give you the feeling of living in the mountainous region. We’ll also visit the villages of the Langtang region that were heavily affected by the earthquake in Nepal in April 2015. Our exciting trek ends back in Kathmandu where we started.

Ridiscover Nepal donates 20% of all bookings to the Minerva Foundation in order to rebuild Dhading and to provide care for the orphans of the 2015 earthquake.

During the trek there is no mention of any lunch hours as every participant has their own pace.

Trip Reviews

Thoroughly enjoyed trekking the Tamang Heritage and Langtang with Milan and his wife. Milan took care of everything from food and accommodation to trekking passes etc. I felt safe and could just relax and enjoy. As well as running a very professional tourist business Milan works hard to build friendships. He doesn't just want to provide a good service he wants to become friends with the people he guides, and puts companionship and friendship first. He is warm, kind, funny and track savvy. The Tamang scenery and local people are beautiful, a walk I can highly recommended there is no better guide to take you than Milan.
